I'm 6' 1" and also opted for the comfort seat. It seems slightly taller, but the main gain as you said, is that you can scoot to wherever your arse needs to go. The stock seat kind of locks in you in up close to the tank which was not ideal.i have had my classic since june and have changed to the "comfort seat".... i am 6' 2" and the seat change allows me to move as needed on the seat.... the original seat did not allow much movement... with this simple modification the comfort and fit are awesome... enjoy the ride....
Thanks lady!!!!!I'm 5'7 and no issues. My daughter, 5'4 doesn't struggle to hold it up. Bike has low grav and is light so I wouldn't worry Bosket.
I'm 5 ft, and I have the lowered seat. When I get on the bike, I'm on the balls of my feet - not tiptoeing though. My best friend is about your height and with the lowered seat, she was comfortable flat-footing my bike with some knee bending. I hope that helps.Im 5,3 . Still not sat on it but I wonder if I will need the lower seat or not... Does anybody near my heigh tried?
